Safer Schools

Safe-School-Alliance-for-web KIds in front of bus

The Safer Schools Initiative is a collaborative project bringing key stakeholders together from neighborhood partners, schools, city, county, and businesses to ensure our school kids are safe.  This program will identify and address a broad range of issues around safety including but not limited to neighborhood engagement, education for pedestrians and bikers, lighting and cameras in parks and alleys, traffic signals, safe drop off and pick up areas, sidewalks and crossing areas, vehicle traffic and parking.  Key stakeholders have been identified and initial planning meetings are well underway. The City will be engaging neighborhood partners and businesses to encourage them to work together with schools to build Safer Schools programs in their areas.

The initial pilot will include 5 schools:

  • James Marshall Elementary
  • Mark Twain Jr. High
  • Orville Wright Elementary
  • Robertson Road Elementary
  • William Garrison Elementary
